Provides everything to support student life outside the seminar room or lecture theatre
FaulknerBrowns for Teesside University
Contract value: £10.9m
Cost per m2: £3,858
Student Life represents a new focal point at the heart of Teesside University’s Middlesbrough campus, providing everything needed to support student life outside the seminar room or lecture theatre. Within a facade of glass and dichroic glass fins, a run of timber clad pods containing consultation and study rooms creates a series of interlocking internal volumes, with 26 individual rooms clustered between double height spaces. Each cluster is accessed via a waiting area that can also be used for quiet study. The scale of these has been moderated to balance openness and connectivity with the need to provide more intimate spaces.
